Are you aware that Americans spend millions of dollars every year just on teeth whitening procedures? This is, at least in part, because having any imperfections in your smile can hurt your self-esteem. However, while whitening your teeth is one thing you can do to help the color of your pearly whites, did you know that dental veneers can perfect the color of your teeth and other imperfections?

Veneers are a great cosmetic option because they’re made to match your other pearly whites. Veneers are typically thin shells that are attached to your natural teeth. Because they’re fused to your teeth, they can be used to address many different issues, including cracks, chips, and discolored teeth. However, you should expect to enjoy your veneers for up to fifteen years.

Fortunately, if you take good care of your veneers, you could expand their life. Naturally, you should floss and brush your veneers. You should also remember to brush for two minutes at a time and to floss at least once a day. Still, when you are brushing, please remember to use non-abrasive toothpaste because they work best on veneers. You should also remember to schedule regular checkups with us. During these visits, we’ll be able to give you unique dental advice.

Please understand that you should avoid chewing on pens, metal, and ice. Trying to open things with your pearly whites might also damage your veneers. To learn more about avoiding these different problems or about preserving your dental veneers in Orem, Utah, please don’t hesitate to give Dental Center a call at 801.224.6165. We look forward to meeting with you soon.
